The creation of the great castle was due to Louis XIV who abandoned the Louvre to build a royal palace. In 1789 the royal family finally returned to Paris. In 1837, Louis-Philippe decided to convert it as the museum of French History. Nowadays, the castle has been restored to be as beautiful as in the past.
